Where are we going today?

Why a Discovery Museum? Occasionally a visitor asks why a parent or guardian is asked to stay with their child during a visit to the Museum. Our answer is best expressed by our passionate belief in our greater mission to families in addition to the educational experience of children. It is important to remember that a child's motivation to learn depends on meaningful activities and a supportive environment where imagination and curiosity are encouraged. You are a primary teacher and partner in learning with your child and no one is more important to him or her than you. This is a great opportunity to discover the emerging personalities of children. We hope that by visiting the Museum and participating in its programs or special interest activities you will be provided with an opportunity to better understand your child's interests and discover new ways to encourage their natural curiosity through activities at home and school. Remember our CDMOD motto, It's Not Just Play, It's Serious Fun!

    Excellent place for children and there keepers.
    Couple of things that would improve it would be:
    1. The racing car track which was the very best attraction for my young charge kept having problems with bad motors which was very frustrating for staff and kids alike.
    2..Food and Drink available
    Thank you ,

    I took my two year old son there this weekend and he absolutely loved it. A great place to spend a couple of hours with your kids and also a great way to beat the sun in the middle of the day!
